In his previous article, A Beginner’s Guide to Silverlight with PHP, author Jordan Knight talked about creating a web service in PHP and then consuming that service from Silverlight. In today’s tutorial, Jordan shows us how to create a twitter client in Silverlight, using the concepts he introduced us to last time.

Before you get your hands dirty creating a simple Twitter Client, you’ll probably want to take another look at Jordan’s first piece. We won’t be summarizing the basics here, so it’s important to get your head around the ground we covered last time before you dive in.

We have a Microsoft-sponsored quiz for you to try once you’ve read the article, so let’s see how good your memory is!
